(Newser) – A Pennsylvania mom wisely decided to call in emergency services instead of trying her luck with the controls after her 2-year-old got stuck inside a grab-claw vending machine with the other toy prizes. Firefighters were able to free the girl—who had apparently climbed into the chute where prizes are dropped by a coin-operated crane—within 15 minutes, AP reports.

"We walked in, and in this machine was the cutest little girl in a pink outfit sucking a binky, sitting right inside with the other toys in the toy machine," said the local fire chief. The little girl, he says, took her pacifier out her mouth and thanked firefighters after being freed.
